case. mike pence asked the department of natural resources to explain charges against that couple pell. next the bad, they look like the real thing but they're not. investigators confiscated more than $13 worth of phony nfl merchandise over the past five months. operation red zone shut down 3 #00 sites selling the gear. the ugly. a shocking smash and grab caught on camera. take a look at thieves driving a stolen s.u.v. through a kay jeweler's in california. the guys used hammers to smash the display cases and snatched the jewelry before taking off. that merchandise $13 million worth of merchandise. >> earlier in the show we were asking when it comes to the super bowl this weekend are you more interested in the commercials or games? >> kphrergss during --
3:01 am
commercials during the super bowl are like comedians who entertain you between acts. >> thanks to everybody who responded. "fox & friends" starts right now. everyone have a great day and wonderful weekend. >> see you on monday. >>gretchen: good morning everybody. tgif. it's friday and it's february 1. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing your time with us today. a rough ride for president obama's pick to run the pentagon. what former senator chuck hagel said that have many people no longer worried about his views but his competence. >>steve: this is your pilot sleeping. the veteran pilot who was supposed to land that airplane passed out behind the control is what happened. we did wind up scrambling a fire truck if that tells you anything. let's go down to brian
3:02 am
kilmeade at the super bowl. i know it's a special day if he gives me an introduction to the cold open. i'm awake now but it was an extremely late night. my trip to bourbon street. >> nowhere on bourbon street would you find santa claus partying. >>brian: that's an interesting hat. i will not be bringing it back. the real nfl experience live from new orleans. that's where we are. "fox & friends" starts now. [music]
3:03 am
>>brian: that is the tulane marching band. they were there. we have the tulane cheerleaders as well. it's early for them. to the right we've got the louisiana national guard. they have been a busy group over the past ten years between katrina and the b.p. disaster. of course we have some of the finest football players in louisiana. they are all under 8 years old. they are in the locker room putting on their eye black. over there the new orleans saints cheerleaders all part of the fun this morning over at the nfl experience. >>steve: that is awesome. brian, did you have to call every one of those people with a wakeup call? i don't think we've had that many people live on "fox & friends" at 6:00 a.m. eastern, 5:00 a.m. your time. >>brian: steve, i did and it took awhile.
3:04 am
some needed a return call because they didn't get up right away. this marching band is privileged to be out here. they are pumped up to be part of the nfl experience. the band is pumped up. they haven't been back since katrina. they have had the super bowl before. since that time, you had the b.p. disaster last year, katrina in 2005. this city is ready to show off how much they improved. >>gretchen: brian, so glad you made it there after the weather we experienced here. you're looking ready to go for the weekend. we'll be back in touch in a moment. we have too bring people up to speed on headlines. a third day of tense hostage situation. this is alabama. that man is still holding a boy in an underground bunker. cops haven't released the name but he's known to stay in the bunker for up to
3:05 am
eight days. and he holds anti-american views. cops say the boy is being allowed to take medication and watch tv. >> an alaska airlines flight heading for seattle forced to make an emergency landing after one of the pilots reportedly passed out. the copilot landed the plane safely in portland. the pilot was taken to the hospital. no word on his condition. no one else was hurt. >> wicked weather causing massive pileups in the midwest. this is the scene in detroit. heavy snow and whiteout conditions leading to the wreck. at least three people were killed including two children. around 300 cars were involved in a chain-reaction crash. in indianapolis, similar conditions caused a 40-car pileup leaving seven people hurt. a little farther down the road three elephants were seen stranded. a tractor carrying the animals slid off the road, but the elephants were not
3:06 am
hurt. >> syria and iran threatening to attack israel for its airstrike on a weapons convoy inside the country of syria. israel saying it did target the convoy to prevent hezbollah from obtaining russian-made surface-to-air missiles. many world leaders fearing extremists would get their hands on the weapons as syria's civil war wages on. syria says the weapons convoy didn't exist and the israeli jets attacked a military facility outside damascus. israel's first strike inside syria since 2007. that may have been what hillary clinton meant when she said yesterday after giving up the secretary of state post that the world is a very difficult place right now. >>steve: it is. yesterday chuck hagel had a rough first day. he would like to be our next secretary of defense. his appearance was rambling. he was stapl pherg. "the new york daily news" this morning writes whatever president obama sees in chuck hagel, it was largely invisible as he faced his former
3:07 am
colleagues. if you missed the testimony, we had it largely here on the channel yesterday. here he is tangling with john mccain over the troop surge in iraq which mr. hagel opposed. >> if you would like me to explain why -- >> i actually would like an answer. yes or no? >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated that, as i've said. my answer is i'll defer that judgment to history. >> i think history has already made a judgment about the surge, sir, and you're on the wrong side of it. >> do i think it is right that israel was committing a, quote, sickening slaughter as you said on the floor of the senate? >> i would like to read all of it, what i said. first, i said many, many times, senator, every nation has a right to defend itself. >> do you think a sickening slaughter would constitute a war crime? >> no. depends on, they were attacked. depends on many factors.
3:08 am
>> why do you think that the iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination to be the secretary of defense? >> i have a difficult enough time with american politics, and, senator, i have no idea. but thank you. >>steve: the iranians love him, brian. >>brian: it is unbelievable. he did not understand about containment. did not understand what the president's policy was but at least did not make it clear. when you talk about containment, that means we're going to allow iran to get nuclear weapons but try to contain them. that is not the policy you would think the president would want his new secretary of defense to have because it is not his policy. i thought it was stunning they played two clips that senator cruz, who is coming out like a bulldog in his first two weeks in office, he played two cuts from his interview with a jazeera where he did not deny that america is a bully and did not say he disagrees with their conclusion that israel is committing war
3:09 am
crimes. he was battered and beaten from the "wall street journal" to liberals like peter bynehart who said i do not see what the president sees in him. what about the "washington post"? hagel has been shaky thus far. the brookings institute, this is a tough job in government. he needs to be better. senator rubio says he's not going to get my vote. i don't know what he does today to change thing. >>gretchen: probably going to be a close vote. many people speculating he will be able to pass through but not with a lot of criticism and confusion about the choice. you maybe have to look at the political landscape as to why the president would pick somebody. keep in mind, this was a republican. so was this more about politics than anything else? let's hear from liz cheney. she was on sean hannity's show last night. >> i think this is the worst performance, frankly, i can recall not just by a senior nominee, but by any nominee up for
3:10 am
confirmation. across the board. senator hagel came into this today with a lot of very concerning policy views that have been well aired, that raise legitimate concerns. but after watching the performance, he's left real questions about had i competence. it was embarrassing because you had to sit back and think, wait a second, this is the man the president of the united states wants to put in command of our armed forces. first of all, think about the obligation that we have to the men and women in uniform. we owe them the best. this certainly is not the best. we watched his performance today by somebody who fails to comprehend the most fundamental threats that we face as a nation. at one point in his testimony, he also talked about the fact that he didn't imagine he'd be in charge of anything. this was really -- you couldn't make up how sort of baffled and dazed and confused he appeared. >>steve: it was not very good. let me say something nice about chuck hagel. he's got an outstanding combat career. he was a leader in vietnam. he had two purple hearts. and if he were selected to head up the department of
3:11 am
defense, he would be the first enlisted man to serve as the civilian head of the pentagon. lets see what happens. stay tuned. you'll see it all right here on fox. let's go back down to brian. brian, yesterday you were out on bourbon street, which is a name -- which is named that because there are so many churches on that street? >>brian: exactly, steve. you have looked at your history. that's actually right. here's the deal. i want to give you a sense of what it's like at super bowl weekend. thursday is a pretty big day. wednesday they say was kind of quiet. i want to walk down the street, see a few parades, meet some of the people and store owners. this is what you might be missing if you were not on bourbon street last night. >> for the tenth time, new orleans has the super bowl and i get the sense, although it's been quite a few years, they remember how to host it.
3:12 am
>> only on bourbon street would you find santa claus partying for mardi gras. >> and you fit right? babe's caberet. i love babe ruth. something i can relate to. now i know what makes this famous -- new orleans famous for a lot of things, including cigars. >> we're the only ones in the city, actually in the state that hand rolls our own cigars. this is good stuff. >>brian: what super bowl night party would be complete in new orleans without fireworks. it signals the party is just getting started. for me, it means i should go home. an example of some of the cuisine. where is this from? this is from gallitori's.
3:13 am
let me give you an example of what's coming up here. we showed you the band. we showed you the cheerleaders. over to my right, harry cor son, marcus allen, two hall of famers talking about the pressure on both teams straight ahead and also the pressure to make football safe. how do they feel about the new trend, the president coming out and saying if i had a son, i don't think he'd be playing this game. that's all coming up straight ahead in this hour on "fox & friends." >>gretchen: so much stuff going on down there. so exciting. i wish you could bring that food back to us. i'm a little envious about that. >>steve: we got three hours live from, you know, bourbon street, the french quarter and new orleans. brian, thank you very much. coming up. >>gretchen: tax to the max from progolfers to
3:14 am
tiger woods to tina turner. are the president's policies to blame? coming up next. >>steve: who says they can't be friends? >> hello. >> there you go. >> give it to him. that's all i got. >>steve: what could possibly go wrong? meet one mailman's four-legged helper. you're watching "fox & friends" live from new york friends" live from new york and new orleans.

3:18 am
>> he was the very symbol of the city itself. brave, funny, outspoken and sharp. ed koch brought new york city back from the brink when he was elected mayor in 1977. >> nobody thought i could win, but i got my message out and people believed it and they voted for me. it was a shock. >> he was born in 1924 in newark, new jersey, served in world war ii and took on the democratic tammany hall of the 1960's as a reformed democrat before being elected councilman, congressman and finally moving to city hall where he inherited a city besieged by crime, public unrest and near bankruptcy. >> new york is a great city, but the big apple does not grow in the garden of eden. >> by force of his personality, he put new york back on the path to solvency. >> when i came in, the city was in a state of short-term debt of $6 billion, which we had to
3:19 am
eliminate over a four-year period. and we did it over a three-year period. and i'm very proud of what we did. >> he created a $1 billion housing program that wiped out abandoned ghettos and always forcefully spoke out on local and international issues. >> he's the only man i know who speaks to god as an associate. [laughter] >> after three terms, he was defeated in 1989. but that didn't stop him from writing and remaining involved in public issues as a private and beloved citizen. >> as i said when i left office, i'm never going to retire. i expect to die at this desk. >> koch, who never married, described himself as a liberal with sanity. >> a whacko i'm not. >> he often endorsed republicans and was known for his independent, passionate and spirited
3:20 am
ways. he even picked out a new york city grave site because, he said, he didn't ever want to leave manhattan. ed koch, a new york original, remembered with much affection and respect. >>gretchen: sad news this morning. ed koch was 88 years old. he had been fighting illness for the last couple of weeks. >>steve: more bad news from the labor department this week. first time unemployment claims are up, 368,000 for the week, ending january 26. >>gretchen: the biggest indicator of our economy's condition, the unemployment rate, will be released a few hours from now. here with a preview, charles payne filling in for stu varney today. >> big day. good morning. the street is looking for 165,000 jobs in the unemployment rate to stay at about 7.8%. again, that wouldn't be great news, to be quite frank with you. but we've become accustomed to sort of mediocrity.
3:21 am
maybe that would be what wall street wants or needs to get to new highs with the stock market. >>gretchen: what do you make of the latest situation where some high-profile successful people in america have spoken out about this tax revolt, that they don't really want to pay these taxes? >> they're crying uncle or uncle sam. after awhile when you squeeze tight and tight and tight -- of course last week phil mickelson was at the brunt of it but he's not the first one. tiger woods came out to his defense and said i left california a long time because of the crazy taxes. by the way, you guys know proposition 30, which layers on. imagine paying 43% to the federal government and another 13% to your state. there is a point where you say enough is enough. i've done my fair share. >>steve: why live in that state when you can move to another state like florida or texas where they don't have -- >> there's been a massive exodus out of california for a long period of time. if phil wanted to move, he'd be on the highway for
3:22 am
hours trying to get out. >>gretchen: next, two days before the big game and harry carson, marcus allen hanging out with brian live. coming up next. eat like a giant... ♪ and feel like a green giant. ♪ ho ho ho ♪ green giant gives you 1% cash back on all purchases, plus a 50% annual bonus.

3:24 am
you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, haveuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have symptoms such as persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biologic medicine prescribed by rheumatologists.
3:25 am
>>brian: we're two days away from the kickoff of super bowl xlvii. that's not the only story dominating the headlines. everyone has been talking about from the president on down, performance-enhancing drugs and how they have tarnished the profession.
3:26 am
for example, fran tarkington. >> these drugs are in high school, college, profootball and nobody is talking about them. when you talk about the safety of football, when you have these drugs in your body you're putting on 50, 60, 70 pounds. the collisions are more intense because of the size and speed of the players. therefore, you're going to have more injury, more concussions, more brain damage than we've ever seen before. and lord knows we've seen enough of it. >>brian: are we really turning a blind eye when it comes to drugs in profootball? when you talk about safety, if we don't talk about performance enhancers are we addressing it? turning to two guys who lived it. harry carson, super bowl champion and still a captain today. a privilege to have you. marcus allen. no super bowl would be complete if we don't do a marcus allen interview. super bowl m.v.p. and hall of famers both of you. safety, harry, you were the
3:27 am
first to talk about head injuries in this game as hard as you play, as hard as you hit. now we're coming around to it. do you think anything will get done? >> i think the way we play the game will be changed a little bit. it's all about trying to keep the head out of the game in terms of hitting and helmet-to-helmet hits and so forth. you can't really regulate. it's going to be up to the players to be trained not to use their heads in making plays. >>brian: you know what happened in belcher might be related. you know what happened to esau, shot himself in the chest. up until 1982, no 300 pounderrs in the nfl. now there are.
3:28 am
>> testing is going to be critical. i think guys are bigger and stronger because of nutrition. i think advances in workout training, all these different things. i just wouldn't just say endorse what fran tarkenton said. but certainly there's going to be isolated cases where we have to -- >> weight training is significantly better and more. weight training is taking place now than when fran came or i came into the league. guys, they train year round. >> when i played, i don't know about marcus, we knew we couldn't spend all our time in the weight room. >> they say i was the jane fonda of the national football league, because i all i did was stretch. >>brian: when it comes to prostate cancer, guys want no part of it. what is the message? >> we partnered with urology care and the nfl to
3:29 am
get a message out to men to know their stats with regard to prostate cancer. it is the second-leading cause of death in terms of cancer with men. but it's very treatable if you get it in time, if you get it early. it is 100% curable after five years, if you get it in time. there are so many men who are afraid to go to the doctor and get checked. i've been getting checked. >> we just want guys to go to the doctor and get their prostate care. that's all we want guys to do. you're right. guys will not go to the doctor. girls do, but guys won't. that's the message. if you're over 40, go see a doctor. >>brian: marcus allen, harry carson, two of the brightest, best personalities out here, thanks for spending quality time with me. still ahead on this show, one puppy that's eager to help the mailman. >> hello. hello. there you go.

>>gretchen: fox news alert. we continue to follow that tense hostage situation in alabama entering its third day today. police still negotiating with the gunman holding a five-year-old boy in an underground bunker. >>steve: live in midland city, alabama, with the very latest. what do we know? >> good morning to you. another 24 excruciating hours for this community that is trying to stay focused and not get frustrated with knowing very little about these ongoing talks with this gentleman underground holding this five-year-old boy in this bunker that he constructed himself. police say the suspect in this case has been known to stay underground for up to eight days at a time. police say he may have supplies to stay underneath for three weeks. animation this shows what we believe this bunker may look like. this community is holding
3:35 am
vigil, prayer services to release this five-year-old boy he has now held for more than three days. >> trying to bring the community together to pray for the safety of this young child and the safe release to get him back to his family as quickly as possible. >> he needs to be back with his family. if i could go over and get him, i'd go get him. >> they are continuing to negotiate with this gentleman through a p.v.c. pipe that is about four inches in diameter. he can stay under ground for several days at a time. ere is certainly an airs of anxiousness beginning to kick in here. >>steve: do we have any idea why the guy had a bunker >> yeah. he's known to the area as a survivalist, antigovernment. kind of a doomsday preper they described him. that's one of the reasons they say he had been out for a couple of years at nighttime, very late at night digging this bunker,
3:36 am
trying to prepare for these types of scenarios. >>gretchen: i feel horrible for the family of that little boy. another fox news alert. moments ago we learned former new york city mayor ed koch has died at a new york city hospital. koch was being treated for fluid build-up in his lungs. he was moved to intensive care yesterday. koch was hospitalized monday, two days after he had been released from another hospital. he was forced to miss the premier of a documentary about his life tuesday because of his health problems. koch who had heart surgery in 2009 was hospitalized twice late last year. ed koch was 88 years old. >>steve: and beloved by new yorkers. a warning this morning about something that might be in your medicine cabinet. the company that makes triminic and thera flu recalling units. the recall is due to reports that children were able to open the child-proof caps. not supposed to be able to do that. at least one child needed
3:37 am
medical attention. >>gretchen: looks like mailmen and dogs, they're no longer enemies. watch this. >> there you go. give it to them. that's all i got. have a nice day. go give it to him. >>gretchen: a golden retriever in cape cod does that every day. the mail man says this pooch greets him at the fence and asks in his own way to deliver the mail. very cute story. >>steve: see our golden retriever would take that letter and bury it in the backyard. >>gretchen: hopefully it was a bill. >>steve: this is president obama's second super bowl in office, so we thought we'd look at what has changed over the last four years, especially when it comes to the money you're spending. going in and having a cold one at the super bowl party? the price for beer up 6.5% from four years ago. everybody loves chicken? for super bowl 43 chicken
3:38 am
legs were 51 cents a pound. now it is 65. paying over 14% more. want a burger as you watch the big game, dig deeper. need cheddar on that burger, that's up 19%. $5.87 a pound. beef itself up 26% from 2009 to $3.08 a pound. talk about pain at the pump. if you need to fill up your car or your vehicle on the way to the super bowl bash, gas soared more than 56% since super bowl 43. the average price for a gallon of gas back then $1.93. now it's $3.42. >>gretchen: brian, i hope you went to the a.t.m. before you went off on your flight yesterday because it sounds like you're going to need a lot of cash to do all the partying that you plan on doing. >>brian: absolutely. i really don't want to work. i just am here to just have a good time. that is why my expense report is always like a circus. right behind me is the louisiana national guard. i want you to meet
3:39 am
people -- or re-meet people you met when the new orleans saints were lucky enough to get into the super bowl. these are the new orleans saint cheerleaders. ladies, how happy are you to be here? i want you to meet danielle. first off, we met you before. >> you met me in miami when the saints were in their first super bowl ever. >>brian: what are your jobs now? the saints didn't make it, but new orleans did. their tenth super bowl. what do they have you doing? >> our main job this week is to play host to all the hundreds of thousands of people that are flooding new orleans right now. we're not in the game so we have no stress about who is going to win. it don't matter to us. we want to make sure that everybody coming to our city is enjoying the nfl and the best of what new orleans has to offer. >>brian: we'll see if there is rivalry between the ravens cheerleaders who are here and the 49ers cheerleaders who are here. one theme throughout this super bowl, the first one since katrina slammed new orleans really heart. courtney, you know this pretty well, don't you?
3:40 am
>> yes, sir. unfortunately, i do. i was a victim of katrina as well as many other people here, lost a house and a business. but the people of this aerokwrar are very strong-willed and they have a great spirit about them and a great sense of community, and they built back stronger and better. we're excited to be hosting the super bowl and show everybody everything we accomplished. >>brian: as great as it is to be new orleans saints cheerleaders, they need other jobs. they have great jobs, great careers and they still have smiles on their faces at 5 a.m. in the morning. back to you, guys. steve and gretchen, you've been editing our week in review, all the best moments that occurred together. >>steve: there were so many, we had to be selective about it. it's been quite a week here on the curvey couch, i guess you could say that there's been a lot of highlights. let's take a look at what you missed this week.
3:41 am
>>gretchen: good morning everybody. >>brian: sounds like a good show. don't let us down. >>steve: the germiest places in the office. iran has just launched a monkey into space. we have worked hard and booked a spider monkey named tarzan. >> he's looking at his reflection. pwroeufp my final -- >>brian: my final thought is i'd like to travel with tarzan. >>gretchen: are you coming back or just going into space? we're really going to miss you. the monkey is a little dizzy at this hour of the morning. >>brian: you think monkey. i think stuart varney. >>gretchen: i'm getting very dizzy. >>steve: i understand you're doing something later today in times square? you're going to be knitting in times square? >> we'll discuss that another time.
3:42 am

3:47 am
u.s. embassy in turkey. a number of people reportedly hurt. no word on what caused the explosion. we'll update you as soon as we get more information. singer randy travis may be able to avoid the jail house rock. he's been sentenced to at least 30 days of rehab and community service for driving drunk naked last summer. he's going to spend 180 days behind bars in clothes if he gets into trouble again. and that's the news. >>gretchen: thanks, steve. it's a debate getting hotter by the day. a colorado school changing the words to the pledge of allegiance. first it was french and spanish. now they have come under fire for reciting the pledge in arabic. coming up next we have a fox news contributor. liz stern, founder of good morning, ladies. this is the cultural club at this high school. they asked a principal if
3:48 am
it was okay to first do the pledge in french, spanish and later in the week arabic. katie, have a problem with it? >> absolutely. we've seen throughout history that civilization is put together and held together by one language. whether you're a person of religion with tower of babel, we know that language is essential to having an economy and country that stays together. this is a public school and the language used by the government of the united states most often is tkpwhreurb, english and these kids should be reciting the pledge of allegiance in english. >>gretchen: liz? >> i understand what you're saying. but i also believe if the children are speaking other languages, they should be allowed to say the pledge of allegiance in their languages. we live in a melting pot here in the united states where there are many different cultures and children speak many different languages and i feel they should be allowed to say the pledge of allegiance in their language if that's something they choose to do. >>gretchen: the thing for
3:49 am
me, ladies, i guess i break it down on to what they were actually reciting. if they were reciting a nursery rhyme, then i don't think we'd be having this discussion. they were reciting the pledge of allegiance, which is our patriotic pledge to this country. and in fact, the immigration debate on capitol hill right now, one of the tenets of the senate's bipartisan commission is that immigrants coming to this country learn how to speak english. katie? >> we are supposed to be a melting pot, and that's why we have these diverse clubs on college campuses, diversity programs and organizations dedicated to that. but the fact is we've seen the melting pot turn into singling people out into groups. in terms of this happening in the public school system, let's not forget the controversial la raza study program in tucson, arizona, that turned into segregation. we've got to make sure this isn't about singling people out but rather coming together as americans.
3:50 am
>>gretchen: the principal says we have a tremendous amount of diversity in our school. this is very american when they pledge of allegiance to the united states. they are just using another language as their vehicle. i guess if you played devil's advocate or switched it around, it seems you can't say god in school any more but now you can say allah in the pledge of allegiance. i think that's what some people have a problem with. >> i understand that. again, it is a personal opinion, and everybody has the right to choose and they can say what they want to say. at the end of the day, i don't think anybody should be changing any words. and i think that the pledge of allegiance should be allowed to be said in that language of choice. >>gretchen: got to wrap it up. katie, liz, have a fantastic weekend. speaking of god, i give god 10%. why do you get 18? the unlikely tip from an unlikely source. that was what she wrote on the bill.

4:06 am
dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> my reference to the -- >> will you answer the question, senator hagel? the question is, were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. i would like to answer whether you were right or wrong and then you are free elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer. >> let the record show he refuses to anti-question. >> a senior obama administration official says it was shocking and dispinting that there were more questions about the war in iraq then about the ongoing war in afghanistan and that official also acknowledged hagel's long day on the hill wasn't perfect. but they think he tried in good faith to answer questions about past statements. as we saw, there was intense interest in his prior remarks about israel and iran. >> why do you think that the
4:07 am
iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination to be secretary of defense? >> i have a difficult enough time with american politics, senator. i have no idea. but thank you. >> next thursday is the earliest the senate armed services committee could vote on his nomination. that's according to the committee chairman, democratic senator carl levin. back to you in new york. >> steve: thank you very much. they did vote on capitol hill earlier this week and john kerry is the new secretary of state. today is actually hillary's last day. yesterday she was at the council for foreign relations and the president over there said john kerry has some very large monolo blonics to fill. those are shoes, brian. >> brian: i had no idea. >> gretchen: those are women's shoes. you guys probably don't want to be caught in them. >> steve: probably not. they're high heels. >> brian: i will say this, i'm fascinated that everyone is
4:08 am
saying that the secretary of state is one of the best ever, i don't think there is a lot there. if you look at the pure resume, she may have laid the groundwork, but in terms of impact, russia hasn't been reset. the arab spring, we're hardly ahead of that curve. iran is closer to a nuclear weapon. relations with israel are anything but smooth all these years later, 4 1/2 years later. but she leaves with about a 80% approval rating. >> steve: she also has that stain on her resume of benghazi. during the question and answer sequence at the council of foreign relations yesterday, she said, we know leadership has its cost that ambassador chris stevens and the other three americans understood that danger and, quote, we must always strive to be worthy of that honor. >> gretchen: secretary of state coming in, john kerry, has a huge job. we got so many problems all around the world. we've got the explosion in turkey this morning. don't know if that's a terrorist
4:09 am
attack. we got syria, the mali and al-qaeda growing in northern africa. not to mention the nuclear problems in iran and north korea and you could go on and on and on. so huge job. let's look back on hillary clinton's time as secretary of state. i guess we have a little fun with this [ laughter ] ♪ . ♪ ♪ . >> my husband is not the secretary of state. i am. you ask my opinion, i will tell you. i'm not going to be channeling
4:10 am
my husband. ♪ . >> let me thank my dear friend, secretary clinton. [ laughter ] >> i almost said president clinton. [ laughter ] >> hillary was like, seriously, though, would you. >> gretchen: she gets to sleep in at least for a while. then all of the gossip will start about whether or not she will run for president. >> steve: she gets to sleep in until she starts waking up early for the pancake breakfasts in iowa. >> brian: let's talk about something i can relate to. if you wanted to take me to a formal restaurant, said, brian, i have a place with table cloths, i would say, find may fridays or appleby's.
4:11 am
and that's where we find our next story, appleby's. when it comes to tips, i wear khaki and i lived on tips for a lot of years and i feel for the waitress in this last story. >> steve: sure. in fact, we're going to take to you st. louis, the appleby's in suburban st. louis there. and apparently a group of eight -- remember, if it's a group of eight or more, they automatically tack on 18% tip. but a pastor of all people, was in charge of writing the credit card receipt and here it is heard around the world. there is the pastor. on the receipt you can see she writes, i give 10% to god. why do you get 18%? next to the actual tip, there is a zero. although, now that it hit the fan, she and the other people at the people say, the 18% was on there, plus we did leave other cash. >> gretchen: yeah, they say they left 6.29 on the table. she regrets now having written
4:12 am
that. here is the pastor. looking at t is like 18% gratuity. i was like, oh, man. i just said it out of my man. i give god 10. why should i give you 18? i'm sorry i wrote it. it was dumb of me. >> steve: shear what happened, brian. the waitress who was their server was -- said hey, that's funny. showed it to another waitress by the name of chelsea welch who took a picture of it with her phone, then posted it on-line, then it ricocheted around the internet. the next thing you know she called to complain about the server. chelsea welch, who took a picture of it, she got fired and now she's horrified that she would get fired over just showing what happened. >> brian: evidently she wrote, i'm sure jesus will pay my cent groceries and posted it as a
4:13 am
light heart joke. but appleby's is down one fine waitress and appleby's is sorry abouthe whole thing. i say no more notes. let them do the math. >> gretchen: you would know formerly working at bennigan's, you would know all about that. look where you ended up. >> brian: right. with waitresses, alligators and the u.s. national guard. so it's fantastic. >> gretchen: i know. coming up on "fox & friends," talking about pay to play, if you've got dreams of being a u.s. ambassador, it will cost you big bucks. >> steve: plus, is the honorary mayor of new orleans. now drew brees live with brian as we roll on from new orleans and new york. morning, ladies look what mommy is having.

town. but i tell you what, the people here are so resilient. when it comes to putting on an event and making sure people are taken care of and showing them a good time, the city knows how to do it. that's why they've hosted ten super bowls. >> brian: i know you've been unbelievable on the field, but i think you won over the city for when you said i'm -- what you've done off the field. whose decision was that? n my wife and i sat down during that kind of free agency process and it was between new orleans and miami. it was like, we felt a coming to call to new orleans. to be part of the rebirth of this city. really our mindset the whole time was we just want to do our part. we've been blessed with so much and certainly we have this great opportunity, but so many people are in need and we really have the chance to touch a lot of lives. we feel like we've been blessed so much, we just want to be able to give back.
4:19 am
>> brian: there has been controversy, they took a while to sign you and the problems with everybody else. but you know the 49ers pretty well. i believe you guys played the 49ers after kaperknack came on board. are you ready fort super bowl after nine games? >> i'm sure people would have said is he ready to start against the chicago bears in his first start? he came out and played spectacular. is he ready to go on the road and win a big game in the playoffs? and he's done that. so seems like any time somebody raises a question, answers. they're a good team well coached. they really have so much talent on both sides of the ball. and i think what i respect most is they got so close last year, obviously losing in overtime, the nfc championship game. at times it can be hard to come back from something like that and not only did they come back, but here they are playing for a world championship. >> brian: i want to talk about where i caught up to you last
4:20 am
year. x box. i'm always fascinate to do see players play with themselves because you're depicted in x box. what's that like? do you do that a lot in your down time? >> a lot of guys play, x box. but the new thing is kyect for x box. that's really what's so great about this interactive gaming. it's not sitting on the couch working your thumbs. you're actually out, running, boxing, you're dancing, they got the nike knkt. it's great way to stay in shape. for kids, especially in the wintertime, it's getting dark early and maybe you can't go outside to play, it's a great way to stay inside, get your 60 minutes of exercise a day. >> brian: real estating your book, i understand you can relate to alex. can you relate to alex smith, who started, brought him into
4:21 am
overtime last year and very close to the super bowl and now have to watch from the side lines? >> i have to say this, when i got benched, i did enough things to lose my job. alex smith never did anything to lose his job. >> brian: he had a head injury. >> he only -- all did he was play well and got a concussion and that opened up the opportunity for collin. obviously that was controversial at the time. which guy do you go with? you've got the young talented guy that is only going to get better with reps and then this veteran guy in alex smith. but they got two great quarterbacks. they're playing for it all right now. so you can't really argue the decision. but i think alex smith is a tremendous quarterback. a tough guy that -- >> brian: he'll be starting somewhere next year. no doubt when you're done in four or five years, you go into the booth and doing this. drew brees, thank you for coming down. congratulations on your success, contract and look for the saints to be back soon. >> thank you. >> brian: coming up, a

slid off the road. but the elephants were not hurt. folks down south are still cleaning from you this week's tornado. it was so big t actually measured four times the width of the georgia dome. >> gretchen: let's go back to brian now, who is going to be throwing a bit of a super bowl party with sandra lee. lucky you. >> brian: yeah. she's here from the food network and cooking channel. she's upon us here in new orleans. sandra lee, thank you for coming. i'm going to take this out because there is a delay. so you'll be my cue. this looks elaborate, fantastic. >> but it's super easy. thank you for having me. it's always nice to be with the family. >> brian: fantastic. >> so it's really easy. everything is about setting up a buffet in and a bar. but first of all, i want to thank l.j. for hosting me because that tv right there, i feel like vanna white, that's
4:39 am
the l.g. ultrahigh def. >> brian: so let's get to work. >> that costume there, the only way that could be better is if it's in your hand and i'm making it for you. this super bowl is all about setting up bars. you're going to do a hoagie bar. now, you and i it as hoagie, here in new orleans, they call it a muffalet, a bar, which is all sorts of great sandwiches and fillers. instead of normal lettuce, you'll use butter lettuce. and to pump up the flavor, some basil. then use things like roasted red peppers instead of tomatoes, cocktail kind. i know you like good cocktail in the morning. >> brian: the bloody maries are something very popular, especially on super bowl sunday if made right. are you a horseradish woman? >> i am. now, this is going to be -- are we practicing or is this the real deal? are you walking in live on this? he's going for your bloody mary.

4:46 am
old. gretch? >> gretchen: thanks very much. most people think cancer tests are a good thing to help with early detection. but it turns out there are some cancer tests you should skip? here with all the details, director of "consumer reports" health rating center, dr. john santa. good to see you. some people are saying "consumer reports" now into the medical field of giving advice and here is the startling report you've come out with. you're only recommending three cancer screenings for otherwise healthy people. right? >> that's right. we're talking about people who are not at high risk for a cancer, which is most of us. >> gretchen: let's take a look at the good screenings, according to "consumer reports." they are cervical cancer, colon cancer, and breast cancer. why did these three make the cut? >> all of these tests, again, in people who are not high risk end up in saving lives. and preventing problems downstream. they're good tests. they can easily be delivered to
4:47 am
lots of people. >> gretchen: so we saw cervical cancer. here is colon cancer. so much has been made about people getting colonscopies. the age, 50. so that's the starting point, unless you have family history, right? >> that's right. there is three good screening tests for colon cancer. colonoscopy and two others, and an annual test to look for blood in the stool is just as good as those two. >> gretchen: when should women have mammograms, especially with obamacare coming into full force in to 2014 and all these panels. you say it's good screening. >> we do. for women 50 to 75, it saves lives. it can be done every couple of years. for women between 40 and 50, it helps. not as much as women 50. few more false positives and biopsies for the women who are in their 40s. they need to know that. but it's a reasonable test to
4:48 am
have. >> gretchen: now here is what's not recommended and people will be startled by some of this information. starting with a screening for prostate, ovarian, bladder, lung, skin, oral, pan cratic and testicular cancers. the two that jump out at me right away are prostate and skin. why not? >> in the case of prostate cancer, that's the most controversial. this is a blood test. a lot of men are up at sports stores or athletic events, mobile vans thinking they'll just have their blood tested for prostate cancer. >> gretchen: i've been telling my husband to do it. what are you going to say? >> you need to realize that once they have that test, if it's positive, it's going to be very hard to weigh what you should do before they have the test, they need to know that of the 1,000 men who have a positive test, about one will have their life saved. three will have serious complications from the
4:49 am
treatment, possibly death. and 40 will end up incontinent or impotent. each man needs to decide for themselves whether that makes sense to them. >> gretchen: what about skin cancer? there has been a lot of talk about that. you're saying you shouldn't have that once a year dermatology appointment? >> that's right. if you're in a family who has had skin cancer or had skin cancer in the past or you've had many sunburns in the past or you have lots of moles, it's fine four to go in and be checked. but we shouldn't be lining up for dermatologists to look at our full body. it doesn't pay off. >> gretchen: before you leave, the full body scans, yes or no? >> no. the full body scans are much more likely to find some odd finding and then you need more tests to figure it out. much more likely toned up with a false positive that will harm you, not help you. >> gretchen: interesting research. the director of "consumer reports" health rating center, dr. john santa, thank you so much. >> thank you.

if you have a teenage son or daughter, this is right up their alley. i'm 28, i really enjoyed t. i thought it was a clever, well written, very funny, very witty comedy. and nicholas holt who plays the zombie, he becomes more and more human as the movie goes on because of the love. the interesting thing about this film is the social commentary in the beginning, there is an aspect of how we as humans in real life have become glom bees. always on our cell phones, never really interacting face-to-face. i thought that was an interesting almost to put in a teen-ager film. the only problem is in the beginning, it starts off strong, there is a slow part in the middle where it's about ten minutes where it drags. overall, it's a very well done film. i think people will really enjoy it. i gave the movie a 3 1/2 out of 5. what i find fascinating when you watch the movie, you hear these accepts, nicholas holt is a british actor and there is a british actress. in the film they have an american accent. i asked them what is the toughest part about nailing the
4:56 am

5:04 am
three-time mayor of new york city who died this morning at age 88. >> i've known him since the 1970s. elected mayor at a time the city was in the worst possible shape it could possibly be. 1977. he served three fantastic terms. how am i doing became his catch word. he was honored just a year ago. they named the queens burrough bridge the koch bridge. we spoke two weeks ago. i'm sure he did the last broadcast interview of his life with me. we spoke about chuck hagel, senator, former nebraska senator and the confirmation hearings that were looming then two weeks ago for his position, prospective position as secretary of defense. mayor koch was against senator hagel because of his equivocal stance in the mayor's eyes, on israel and some of the statements that he had made about the jewish lobby and so forth. but he was open minded. he was anticipating the hearings
5:05 am
that went so disasterously yesterday. the fact is two weeks ago, january 14, that's when we spoke, he was alert, he was lucid and out of the hospital, between visits. and very optimistic and weak, but totally together, a wonderful, wonderful man. i mourn his passing. >> gretchen: what's so sad is they had just made a documentary about his life. he missed the premiere tuesday night because he had been readmitted. it will be interesting to see. i beat lot of people will want to see that. >> i hear the documentary is terrific. unblinking, unvarnished man who was controversial in his time, but who did a fantastic job and really turned the city around. i really miss him. he was so new york. >> steve: the other break news story this morning, there was apparently a homicide bomber outside our embassy in turkey. >> well, you know, we have -- we're very fearful now of a whole new assault on american interests in the middle east and in north and west africa. the algerian raid i think is
5:06 am
part of this same puzzle here. al-qaeda is as we scattered them from their home base in afghanistan and pakistan. >> steve: wait, we don't have them on their heels? >> we have them on their heels there in south asia, but now they have spread -- they are going to where we ain't. we ain't in north africa and we ain't in west africa. turkey is a situation that the turkish government will try to root out the source of this evil. but we need to be very vigilant and we have to -- benghazi was the wake-up call. it will be a different geography than over the last decade, but equally serious and we have to keep them off shores. >> gretchen: you talked about north africa, a lot of people remember hearing president obama during the campaign saying al-qaeda, owes he is is dead. al-qaeda is on the run. but now it's my understanding that we've been able to set up some sort of a drone base in the country of niger because of the situations that are escalating in north africa.
5:07 am
>> you know, talking about that vacuum again, the one thing we did not have clearly in benghazi, eric bolling and i fought about it on this couch, we had no military assets to rescue our people. we had nothing in place. we didn't have any drones armed with missiles that could have intervened in libya, the country on the right. algeria, the gas plant that was hit was right on the algerian-libyan border. we had nothing there. so now in niger, a country just below algeria, we have, gretchen as you point out, now negotiated a deal where we can have our drones based and from that base in the northwest africa there, we can keep our eyes on this emerging crisis with the remnants of al-qaeda. they're like a mcdonald's now. they're franchise. you close one down, they'll open one across the street. that's what they've done in that region of africa. we've got to crack down. >> steve: brian? >> brian: i just want to weigh
5:08 am
in on this. when it comes to al-qaeda, the investigation in benghazi, the whole reason why it's important now with the election over, and i think the motivation should be very clear, it is, what did you learn from benghazi? our other embassies safe because al-qaeda has made it clear they will attack western interests and western workers around the world in their region. nobody is actually more in danger than they are right now. that is why it's important for everyone to be candid and honest about benghazi, what they did and didn't do because nobody else can be safe with if we don't learn from what happened. don't you agree? >> i totally agree. lindsey graham yesterday at the chuck hagel hearing said one of the good things to come out of the confirmation process, whether or not he makes it now is in question, i think is very doubtful after yesterday, but one of the things lindsey graham said, the good thing is that the next week or two, the senators of the united states will hold true, substantive hearings about the facts and circumstances surrounding the benghazi
5:09 am
tragedy. so we will come to know who knew what and when they knew so we can fix whatever the problem was and never again can u.s. state department or other officials be put at risk. the one thing i will note about the turkish suicide attack, it seems to be very dramatic, but also very ineffective. only two dead -- only. one of whom is the suicide bomber himself. they didn't penetrate the embassy there. >> gretchen: yeah, but it's a scare tactic of going after an embassy again. you had the benghazi situation and now turkey, which many people feel was a safe country. >> steve: that was good answer, senator. you spoke about being in the senate and you created quite a fire storm yesterday on your radio show when you said, you know what? i am seriously giving thought to running as a republican in my home state of new jersey against cory booker potentially. >> it will either be mayor cory booker, the charismatic mayor of newark, the largest city in the state, or five-term 89-year-old
5:10 am
formidable senator lawton burg. they've final registration advantage in new jersey. menendez just trounced my trend in the senate race back in november where the president, president obama carried the state in a tidal wave. but i really do believe, as a modern republican, that there is a point of view that is unrepresented in states like new jersey. there can be a new vitalization of the republican party, a concept where we extol the virtues of good business and fiscal policy and we fight the deficit and we don't advocate the printing of money in obscene amounts just to cover our debts. we have to rein in entitlements. >> steve: look at that! you've already got your stump speech down. if you do run for senate, though, you can't be on tv or the radio. >> you know, the senate race is still a good year away, steve.

came in below consensus. unemployment rate was up and i wouldn't have had a problem with the unemployment rate being higher if more people were looking for jobs. that wasn't the case. the caption rate remained the same. so what we have here is a real stagnant situation where we're just not creating jobs. other parts that really are bothersome, people unemployed a long time. 27 weeks or longer. the needle hasn't moved that up. you have to wond for that's a new normal. they are proud americans and can't find jobs. >> steve: the now normal. it's important what you mention, it could have been worse, with the participation rate, that has gone down. those are the people looking for jobs, taking part in the work force. it had been going down because so many people just simply gave up. >> for it to go lower would be mind boggling. we've seen a mass exodus from people looking for jobs, wanting to attempt to go for the american dream. i'm glad that number hasn't gone down. good news, construction was up. that's pretty good stuff.
